Activity Overview

The Literature Study Module is intended for board certified pharmacists in need of recertification credit and is designed based on the content outline developed by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS). This module consists of 3 online home study activities (see table below). Each activity is designed to assess the learners’ ability to analyze and apply peer-selected contemporary articles to practice.

Module 1A – Insomnia: This module focuses on the pharmacological agents used for insomnia in the elderly population and the risks associated with them as well as the implications of long-term use.

Module 1B – Primary Prevention: This module focuses on the safety and efficacy of aspirin and statins for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease in the elderly population.

Module 1C – PPIs: This module focuses on the use, risk, and long-term use of proton pump inhibitors in the elderly population.

Learners will be required to review the content and complete the associated online assessments. The learner must be able to correctly answer the questions based upon their interpretation of the content, as well as “baseline specialty specific knowledge and/or easily retrievable information.” For purposes of this Literature Study, “baseline specialty specific knowledge and/or easily retrievable information” is defined as product labeling and well-established standards of practice in the specialty practice.

These activities are part of the ASHP and ACCP professional development program for BCGP recertification approved by the BPS.
